Current Records: Eastern Michigan 5-5; Valparaiso 5-6

What to Know

The Valparaiso Brown and Gold will play host again and welcome the Eastern Michigan Eagles to Athletics-Recreation Center, where tip-off is scheduled for 7 p.m. ET Monday. EMU should still be riding high after a victory, while the Brown and Gold will be looking to get back in the win column.

Valpo was just a bucket short of a win last week and fell 68-67 to the Charlotte 49ers. Kobe King (17 points) and guard Sheldon Edwards (16 points) were the top scorers for Valpo.

Speaking of close games: things were close when EMU and the Florida International Panthers clashed two weeks ago, but EMU ultimately edged out the opposition 92-88.

Valpo is the favorite in this one, with an expected 8-point margin of victory. But bettors beware: they are only 1-3 against the spread when favored.

The Brown and Gold are now 5-6 while the Eagles sit at 5-5. EMU is 2-2 after wins this year, and Valpo is 3-2 after losses.
